DOCUMENTARY / WORLD ON TRIAL DOCUMENTARY SERIES

World on Trial is a 60-minute television series designed to elevate public awareness of human rights issues through a courtroom trial format. World renowned jurists argue both sides of sharply contested international human rights issues that are then deliberated by juries around the world.  The French headscarf law and the United States’ use of drones are the topics of the first two episodes. The series was conceived of and is hosted by acclaimed human rights advocate and author Randall Robinson, perhaps best known for organizing the international corporate boycott of South Africa that was instrumental in ending apartheid.
